When I worked in Golden I would frequently eat at the Old Capitol Grill. It was always good so my husband and I decided to stop for dinner during a recent drive through Golden. We should have kept driving. Our meal was inedible. We had...More

Not a bad spot. We came as a group to grab a bite and create a good base before beers at the Coors facility. The burger was solid and fries were exactly what you'd expect. Nothing to rave about, but not bad either.

In the center of town. We dined outside and although our food was quite good, fellow dining partners had ribs that were tough and didn't come off the bone. Server was willing to adjust bill, however, companion diners refused offer. Great place to relax and...More

We were seated in a short span but had to wait for a Hostess. Service was very good and the turkey sandwiches excellent. We would come back in the future.

I would recommend the smoked wings. They were the best I ever had. I'm from CA and was trying to find this restaurant there. They are huge and along with a small green salad with Italian vinagarette makes a full meal.

Came here to eat some beer and appetizers before a show at Red Rocks. The fried pickles and gravy fries were both pretty lackluster. Seemed like they were possibly reheated or microwaved. Wouldn't recommend.

Arrived in Golden on a Saturday afternoon and quickly learned how popular this town is! Waited 30 minutes for a table at 2 in the afternoon so we assumed this place was good. Service was acceptable. The burger with pork barbecue was overlooked and the...More

Nice meal and atmosphere. Appetizers were great. Had issue with doneness of Filet but was resolved. Disappointed that a manager chose to visit the table after the server offered to substitute a cup of soup for a house salad and vetoed it with no consideration.

Our Place is Yours:
Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse has become one of Colorado’s favorite eateries for locals and visitors alike.
The Capitol offers up a full menu of on-site smoked meats, classic American fare, featuring our housemade dishes with some unique twists, in an historic setting.
We have brought back some of the grandeur of the building from its heyday as the capitol building of the Colorado Territory and in celebration of Colorado’s beauty. The colors, light fixtures and wall art are reflective of the mid-1800s period, when Colorado’s Territorial Legislature met within its walls.
